Who here loves CHICKEN!!

MY OTHER RECIPES

When I’m feeling motivated to eat healthier, it seems like chicken is all I eat. Even though there are so many wonderful ways to make chicken, it can still get a little old sometimes. So, we’re always on the look out for new ways to make chicken exciting like this Oven Baked Chicken that we are sharing today. These drumsticks were easy to put together and were a HUGE hit with everyone in the family. The batter coating the chicken is light and tasty and just perfect enough to make you like your fingers. The best part is that it tastes just like Kentucky Fried Chicken but they’re not fried at all – they’re BAKED!! I was surprised that they tasted so good for being baked, but they were, which means I’ll feel less guilty when I have a few. 😉

If you’re a chicken lover like us, you’ll definitely enjoy this simple and easy recipe.

Betty

What do you do with the butter once it’s melted? Add it to the dry ingredients or baste the chicken with it before coating it with the dry ingredients?

    Lil' Luna

    You leave it melted in the pan & the chicken goes on top of it 🙂 Hope that helps!

      mickey

      O.k that was an answer to my question!!

mickey

Do I pour the butter on the chicken or in the pan?

Cheryl

What do I do with the spray butter?

Nikki

Can I use drakes fry mix instead of bisquick? It’s what I have on hand

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried, but it should be ok. Let me know how they come out! Thanks so much!!

Rea

I would cut down the sauce next time. It was a little salty. I dipped the chicken in the melted butter first and then to the mixed ingredients.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks so much for sharing!! You definitely can take some salt out. I’m glad you gave them a try!

Leslie

This looks so good! I added it to my menu plan for next week 🙂 What do we use the spray butter for? Definitely not the 9×13 since it’s plenty buttered already, right?

Monique

What is bisquick mix? I’m from Sweden so If I know maybe I can find the Swedish equivalent.
Thanks 😊

    Lil' Luna

    It is a pre-made baking mix. People use it for pancakes or like breads. Hope that helps!!

Pam

Can someone answer what was asked, what is the purpose of the spray butter?

    Lil' Luna

    We use the spray butter to coat the chicken before putting in the oven, to give it that crispy, golden taste. We also sprayed once during the baking process. Hope that helps everyone 🙂 Thank you!

Kim D.

This looks delicious but we’re not drumstick fans…can this be done with wings instead. How long should I bake them???

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried that. I’m not sure what the baking time would be for those. Maybe a little less, since they are smaller?? I’m sorry, I wish I knew. BUt, those would be so good!

Leslie

The step about how to use the spray butter seems pretty important – maybe consider adding it to the instructions? Making this for the 2nd time now, btw, since my kiddos loved it so much plus we’re bringing dinner to a friend and these make plenty to share!

    Lil' Luna

    I’ve added it, thank you 🙂 I’m so glad you all like it!! We make it all the time now, ourselves!

Caroline

HAS ANYONE USED BONELESS/SKINLESS BREASTS? WHAT ARE THE VARIATIONS IF SO?

    Donna Rummel

    I tried the boneless skinless chicken breasts, they were really good. My husband likes legs & thighs & I like breasts so I just did what the recipe said but I baked everything 25 minutes on each side. We really like it.

Patti

What is spray butter? Pam?

    Lil' Luna

    It’s just butter that comes in like a spray bottle form. You spray the chicken before putting in the oven and once during baking to give it that crisp 🙂

      Patti

      But is there a brand name for spray butter? I think PAM is a spray oil.

        Lil' Luna

        I use…I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter spray. I am sure there are others, that’s just what I have. Hope that helps!!

Genny

This is the best, most tasty, crispy skin, baked chicken I’ve ever had! I had saved this recipe for sometime and finally made it this week. I added 1 & 1/2 tsp. garlic powder to the flour mixture and used Smart Balance spread instead of butter. I also used a whole chicken that I cut up myself. I then sprinkled the remaining flour mixture over the chicken prior to cooking to see if I’d get more of a flavorful coating-it worked! I don’t know if the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” spray is the game changer, but I’m not going to change it! It was simply delicious! I liked it so much better than cornflake baked chicken. The skin actually crisped up with the flour coating. I feel cornflakes get too mushy. Thank you, so much, for sharing this with us! I’ll never crave restaurant fried chicken again!

    Lil' Luna

    You are so very welcome and thank you so much for letting me know! I love hearing when recipes are a hit 🙂

debra

I Am in the mist of making this…don’t have spray butter. Canola spray I have. What should I do?

Patricia Suchodolski

Tried making these. Butter splatters all over oven. I do not have a self cleaning oven. Any suggestions how to make these so butter won’t get all over?

    Lil' Luna

    Hmm..I’m honestly not sure? Mine didn’t splatter all over, but maybe you can just do a smaller amount?

Brandy

I made this recipe tonight, It was very tasty.
The only thing I did differently was melt more butter and brush it over the chicken since I use only real butter and no margarine/spray butter. I served it with cheddar Bisquick biscuits with garlic butter and a salad. Very good dinner thank you for the recipe.

    Lil' Luna

    I am so glad you liked it!! Thank you for letting me know 🙂

Sabrina Clayton

What is the recipe for the salad pictured?
